The great tradition to give eggs for Easter goes back to ancient times. In Russia tsars always presented painted eggs to their confidants. Among the Easter eggs the world famous name was gained by Faberge´s firm that created eggs with surprises from gold, silver and presious stones. The first Faberge egg was produced in 1884 for the tzar Alexander III.
Today, Faberge eggs and pendants, jewellery boxes and photo frames made in Faberge style are priceless masterpieces and reminders of Imperial Russia.
